Dear member of the Society for Folk Life Studies,

I hope this email finds you and your family and friends well.

As you are aware, this year’s Annual Conference in Galway had to be postponed due to the Covid19 pandemic. The Society is now planning to hold the conference in the same location at the end of the summer in 2021.

However, the Society’s Annual General Meeting for 2020 will take place this year, on Sunday 27th September at 3pm (GMT), using the Zoom video-conferencing app. A copy of the agenda for this meeting is attached.

If you would like to attend this meeting via Zoom, please contact me by Saturday 26th September and I will provide you with details of how to log on.

Hoping that you will be able to attend this virtual meeting,

Best wishes,

Steph Mastoris

(Hon Conference Secretary, SFLS)
